Abstract : Our achievements during this research can be summarized under three headings as follows: (1) Investigations of the knowledge of ocean surface geometry required for accurate estimates of ocean surface, sigma; (2) Investigation of a new method for estimating sigma for the ocean; and (3) Comparison of model results (others, as well as ours) with a comprehensive compilation of observational data sets giving sigma for a wide variety of observational and air-sea environmental parameters.
